Tank commander means I will have 3 tankers too many.🤔 Nothing left to do buy buy another tank for 2 of them and their eventual commander, and then another tanker, tank commander, and tank, for that remainder tanker.  You see, I have no choice.

Found Wave 3/2 at Wally last night and bought them all, which has to be the biggest retail haul in a while.

Like getting the Tank Commander. I could go either way with just getting one as an overall commander of my Tank group, or get four to command each of my tanks. (I don't have 4 tanks yet, but that's the goal.)

I'm thinking the same as you, while not four tanks - I currently have five open Tank Pilots - I'm hoping to score a 6th. I'm also watching sales on the tank itself. My hope is I'll be able to score 2nd and 3rd openers of the tank and then when the Tank Commander comes out, get three of him to open, so I'll have three completely staffed tanks.

You guys are seriously giving me tank envy...  I might have to bump up my plan from 2 tanks to 3 just to hang with you guys. :P

I will probably have to get a second tank to use it as a troop transport.

The crates alone are awesome accessories.  Having two tanks set up, one with and the other without the crates, and the crates off in a hangar diorama would be pretty cool.  And that section on the deck of the tank with the access panels looks as though it's intended to have troops standing in there.

Canít have an armored column with just two man.  Sure you could fill in with some cheap ATSTs, but itís just not the same.  At best theyíre just gonna get tripped or hijacked by adorable bears on vines.  You need at least 3 tanks.  Thatís toy law, not mine.

I was thinking nearly the exact same thing. Great line. Wish I had come up with it.

I found more rangers and a tanker this weekend.

What I didnít find and what I have yet to see on retail pegs are Aphra or Enfys Nest.  I saw Luke for the first time this weekend too.  Iíve found smatterings of the army builders and I have seen Han a bit with them or just him left by himself.

While thatís anecdotal stuff for sure I am not out daily looking for this stuff and in general my area is active with collecors and scalpers like any other area...  when TVC came back I didnít see the Hoth Rebel for eons and still I can attest I bought all of those I ever did see, but Iím seeing these army builders more than the female figures which is a surprise.  I think Aphra is more popular than folks wanna admit maybe.  She is interesting looking to me.  Enfys too is a unique looking figure.  Iím kinda shocked I can find the Troopers tho.  A happy surprised tho.
